I haven't gotten a letter about this but looks like its only for warm weather states and the '09 cobalts.

I kept checking for an exhaust leak, but it was a bit too strong for that. Scheduled to head in next week. I'm not sure how invasive they need to get for the inspection.

As far as I know you get the letter if your car falls in a certain VIN range, it was a recall for cobalts in certain hot weather states but they extended it as a special coverage because some cars fell in the VIN range but weren't in the hot weather states...like my car for instance (I live in MD)

check by your fuel tank and see if there are any leaks on there or the lines
